News Post: Takara-Tomy Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Keychains
Those look way cool!!!
From the tiny prints, the lineups are;
Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide, Megatron, Brawl, Starscream, Blackout.
Looks suspiciously similar to these capsule toys that were available last year from Hasbro UK.
ya its prime bb hide and ratchet for the autobots, megs screamer brawl and blackout for the cons. they all look like they use a down scaled version of the fast action battlers molds.
I was about to say that, I have the little Starscream. Quality isnt fantastic and if its made of the same material I wouldnt expect these to last long in your pocket.
hmmm i begging to wonder if blackout is yet again going to be in transformers
I hope not. I really, really hope not. I love the character model, but let it rest. However, I wouldn’t mind if they used the body but gave it a distinctly different head. I could live with that.
Yeah, I remember seeing these things being listed on online shops back during movie 1 in Japan only. The idea behind these is that they are all based on toys from the first film.
Optimus Prime-2007 Premium Leader Class
Bumblebee-2007 Deluxe Class
Ratchet-2007 Fast-Action Battler
Ironhide-2007 Fast-Action Battler
Megatron-2007 Voyager Class
Brawl-2007 Fast-Action Battler
Starscream-2007 Fast-Action Battler
Blackout-2007 Fast-Action Battler
I wish they would do something like this again, but with the newer movie toys that look way better (Leader Brawl, ROTF Leader Optimus, ROTF Voyager Megatron, HFTD Leader Starscream, Etc...) and maybe paint them in full-on movie colors.
@SydneyY: were those UK exclusives? Have not seen those before.
Gotta agree with Syd and the others, these look pretty similar to what was already released....
Looks FAR too much like Fast-Action Battlers
May I ask where you got these photos from??
Kinda weak for them not to do new molds... especially if all they're doing is basing it off pre-existing toys.
Woah! Something new from Brawl?
Thats insane! I have to get him.
That's because they're clearly based on them, and the 2007 leader, voyager and deluxe molds...
I'm in Australia and they were available in many capsule toy vending machines
I took them myself
Whoa you take some way good pictures!!!
This is "Keitai Strap" - a strap accessory for Japanese mobile phone. and pricing is 100 yen, so probably it's a bit smaller than usual keychain goodies.
They could have used the chess pieces or key chains released in the U.S. earlier last year. Where can we buy these in the US? I am interested in the Blackout one.
